Super Bowl Sunday Super Retreat

What great fun we had at our Super Bowl retreat!  We "kicked-off" the day with a delcious breakfast at Lulu's Cafe!  When we returned to the shop, the "teams" made a Charm Square Tote. We breaked for half time - Lunch! Chili and Black Bean Tortilla casserole  were the fare plus yummy cupcakes and apple crisp! Then Beth arrived and showed us how to make these adorable snap bags using a old fashioned retractable measuring tape as the clasp.  Cool!  Couldn't make it?  Maybe next time!
